Considering, they were shown both besotted with each other, the previous two ‘SLB’ movies, including the more recent ‘Bajirao Mastani’, speculations are rife whether Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will boast of any intimate romantic scenes in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's current magnum opus film, Padmavati.
According to an insider source, since Ranveer and Deepika Padukone are not romantically paired opposite each other in the film, there is no question of a romantic song or scene, even as a dream sequence
As is a known fact, Padmavati reveals the tale of the powerful Sultan of Hindustan - the astute and ambitious Turk, Alauddin Khilji and the stunning Mewar Queen Padmavati, known for her beauty, intellect and the courage with which she fought her nemesis – the invincible Alauddin.
“Unfortunately, there is no interaction between Alauddin and Padmavati. This is written history and history cannot be tampered with. Rani Padmavati was a honorable woman, revered even today. Women at that time wore a 'ghunghat' to conceal their head and face. The ‘showman’ Sanjay Leela Bhansali, as a filmmaker, has always been sensitive towards people's sentiments and has treated the subject with utmost respect,” insists the source. Will audiences ‘miss’ the Deepika-Ranveer awesome on-screen chemistry in ‘Padmavati’ is what remains to be seen.
